Baby Pictures is our regular Friday morning film slot exclusively for carers with little ones aged twelve months and under. Set in 1941, two sisters have invented a machine they’ve named LOLA that can pick up radio and TV broadcasts from the future.

But with the Second World War escalating, the sisters decide to use the machine to intercept information from the future that could help with military intelligence. The machine initially proves to be a huge success, rapidly twisting the fortunes of the war against the Nazis.

While Thom (Emma Appleton) becomes intoxicated by LOLA, Mars (Stefanie Martini) begins to realise the terrible consequences of its power. As their relationship falls apart, Thom makes a fatal error with her machine that leads to a nightmarish future.

Shot entirely on vintage cameras, and featuring an original score by the Divine Comedy's Neil Hannon, Irish director Andrew Legge’s debut feature is a fantastic blend of documentary, faux found footage and science fiction.

If you'd like to know more about any sensitive content in this feature, see the BBFC website for more information.

Baby Pictures 

Baby Pictures is open to carers and little ones of twelve months and under. As everyone in the cinema is a parent or carer, there’s no need to worry if it gets a little noisy. Everyone understands. Customers not accompanying a baby will be turned away.

The lights are turned up a little bit and the sound is a little softer to create a peaceful environment for you and the baby. It’s just for carers (Mum, Dad, Granny, Granda, whoever it is it looking after the tot) and babies. Up to two adults can come with a baby. Please note: we cannot allow babies over the age of 12 months to come to Baby Pictures.

Baby Pictures is supported by Film Hub NI.
